Handmade Filigree Video

Excuse my french, but this guy is a bad ass.  

Watching him make everything from scratch was amazing.  

It makes me feel like when I say my stuff is hand made that I'm a little bit of a cheat considering most of my materials have already been processed for me.  

Did you see the way he made the paste solder?  And the way he used it to solder all the pieces together? 


I think I learned a few things....


  1. That was amazing! You are right...handmade takes on a whole new meaning watching him work. Thanks for sharing.

  2. totally awesome! mcgyver of filligree! I know people who work similar to that. . but what I loved was the triangle file to 'spin' the coil of wire and also the torch to heat the pickle bowl!!! too cool.

    I am with you guys, I definitely learned a few things!
